I used to think that being buried (anti-ecological burial) was the primary way of handling the deceased. However, especially after COVID, I have a lot more news on people being cremated, just because there was not enough space or time for people to be buried. I have also found that it is a lot more expensive to have a burial rather than cremation which is why many people are leading towards creating bodies if they cannot afford burials.
Anti-ecological burials and cremation both contribute negatively to the environment and people need to be aware that there are other eco-friendly options for handling the deceased.
One method of cremation is to freeze corpses using liquid nitrogen which then disintegrates the body and does not release green house gases like the traditional way of cremation (burning bodies). Hopefully an increased awareness of this method would decrease the amount of cremations done by burning bodies in the future.
